August was quite fun and full!

First of all we had our county fair.  Between myself and all the kids we entered over 100 items.  We always have fun, but we all are quite competitive and hope to do well.  We all did do well. The boys had lots of positive remarks from the judges and ribbons. Rebekah and I both received High Point in our division and I received Best of Division for my butter tarts as well. That was a huge surprise!

I was so proud of Rebekah. She entered her strawberry jam in the adult division and won against me! Awesome.

Best of Division award on my butter tarts.

Ben won 1st on his bread against Rebekah. He is so talented.

I love this Christmas button wreath Jacob made and won 2nd.  I want to make some of these this Christmas. 

August we celebrated Jacob's 10th birthday.  All my kids are getting so old!  We went to our local corn maze and had a blast.

We brought along one of Jacob's friends.

God bless you and thank you for stopping by.


  1. Great photos Crystal. Looks like Aug was a good month for you all.
    Imagine Ben baking bread and doing so well. Becky has to be happy too, to beat you in the strawberry jam and I really like Jacob's button wreath. Can't believe he is 10 already..

  2. Hi Crystal. I'm so jealous, that fair looked like a lot of fun!!! It's so special that you're so close to your kids and do all these wonderful things together. Way to go on everyone's placings.
